You need to discharge the system,remove the dash & if you don't know what you're doing don't do it. You need to drop the steering column & there's a special procedure to prevent damage to the clock spring for the air bag. If you get that far,you have to remove the entire heater box & completely disassemble it to replace the evaporator. Once re-assembled,you must recalibrate the blend door motors & properly recharge the system,another involved process. It takes 14hrs to do it in a shop,so you can imagine how long it will take for a novice,if you can do it.

Where is evaporator coil located in 2008 saturn outlook. How much should this cost to fix

Evaporator coils (evaporator) is the unit inside the car that the cold air come from in the air conditioner. They are expensive and in most instances need the dash to be removed to have them replaced. Fortunately they are seldom prone to failure, but suffer from blockage in the fins from dust build up and leakage at the pipe fittings . They have a TX valve at the inlet end which may block up but this is a replaceable unit . Get an opinion from an accredited ac specialist shop before replacing the evaporator.

Bad smell coming from ac when turned on 2008 tacoma

This is likely mildew in the evaporator.
Check and verify that the evaporator drain is clear. This is the rubber hose coming out of the bottom of the firewall in front of the passenger, it is aimed at the frame.
There are evaporator cleaning products available at home improvement stores that you can spray on the evaporator (might need a friend with a skinny arm). They do not need to be rinsed, simply run the AC and the moisture from the air will condense and rinse the coils. Also check and change your cabin filter. It is located behind the glove box under the horizontal trap door. It's about $15 and should be replaced about once a year, more often if you park under a tree.

95 Buick evaporator coil

It depends on the problem. Either you don't have enough air passing thru the evap core, or the level of freon is not right, or there is a restriction in the ac lines.
A mechanic would use a set of pressure gauges to check freon flow.

2003 Ford expedition AC question they want to replace the condensor, compressor, evaporator coil and condensor coil. how reasonable does that sound?

you have a leak and if you can hear it or smell it its a good one, most likely its a connecting leak where ever the components connect to each other. with an internal seal leak, such as compressor or evaporator, your freon will last about a month,with a external connection leak, your freon last a couple days

When my ac comes on on a hot day the air smells like mildew?? Does the cabin filter fix that?

Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly. Actually if there is mildew in the system it takes a serious cleaning of the evaporator coil and near by plastic housing / ducting to get rid of the smell. Mildew usually starts forming on the evaporator coil and compartment when the compartment drain gets to be really slow from debris or a dust clog. You can try filters and air fresheners but all they will do is mask the mildew odor. Once the mildew routine starts the only real fix is a serious cleaning of the evaporator coil, compartment and nearby air ducting. Often it takes a good mild and mildew remover to get rid of the problem completely. The evaporator compartment will for sure have to be opened up. If a service shop is going to do the cleaning job correctly they will most likely pump out the freon in the AC system and remove the evaporator coil for proper cleaning. It is not a cheap fix as it is labor intensive and requires the AC system to be drained and re-serviced. Demand that they clean the compartment drain during the cleaning process. My comments are what it really takes to purge the mildew from the AC system correctly. Your call as to fix it or live with it.
Thanks for choosing FixYa,

Bad evaporator coil

Its a big job, The heater box needs to come out, which entails discharging the AC, removing heater hoses, and hardware at the firewall. The complete dashboard needs to be removed and swung out of the way, steering column lowered , and heater box removed and disassembled for evap replacement ( simplified )
